Comment:

Tom Brady and that relentless passing attack are just too much. New England's offense is ranked second in NFL in scoring touchdowns in the red zone (67.3%).

Prediction:

Patriots 45, Dolphins 17

Comment:

One thing I learned in my eight years covering the Patriots, it’s hard to stop Brady & Co. when they get on a roll.

Prediction: Patriots 31, Dolphins 10
Comment: Tight end Aaron Hernandez returned last week, and that’s bad news for the Dolphins. Way too many weapons, and when the Patriots get up early and their front seven can pin their ears back against a one-dimensional Dolphins offense, it could get ugly.
